Dental care abroad

If you go abroad for dental care:

-- Check with the appropriate government agency in the destination country about its national dentistry guidelines.

-- Find out what recourse is available if something goes wrong.

-- At the dental office, look for infection-control procedures, including instrument sterilization and use of protective gloves, mask and eyewear.

-- A traveler's guide to dental care is available through the Organization for Safety and Asepsis Procedures at www.osap.org.

Why is dental cheaper in Mexico? - lower operating costs, dentists are not required have malpractice insurance, dentists are less advanced and use less expensive technology and infection control procedures.

Dental treatment performed abroad although less expensive, also carries an increased number of associated complications and risks.

Cost of dental implants in Mexico

Dental implants Mexico are today's best alternative to natural teeth. They can be your doorway to renewed self-confidence and peace of mind.

An implant is, essentially, a sophisticated titanium screw which is placed into the jaw bone to replace the root of a lost natural tooth. The implant fuses with the jawline to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement. The end result... replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth. The embarrassment , irritation and self-consciousness often experienced by people who have missing teeth, those who wear dentures or who have suffered through older methods of tooth replacement are overcome with the confidence of permanently anchored dental implants.

Dental implants are now recognized as routine treatment for a full range of problems from replacing a single tooth, to full oral rehabilitation, or simply for reliable denture retention.

The fees that I see are only $100-$300 more in McAllen, Brownsville, or Harlingen for an oral surgeon to place the implant. The cost of the crown or denture on top of it is only slightly higher, too. What you must realize is the post-op care and guarantee that goes along with the cheaper price. What if you get a bleeding problem after the surgery? What if your are left permanently numb in your chin after the surgery? What if you get a serious, life-threatening infection in your neck and chest after the implant is placed? What if the implant fails after 2 or 3 months? Would you rather have a US trained dentist, or Mexico trained? What if you get Hepatitis, TB, or AIDS from the procedure? I am a retired dental assistant from south Texas and I have seen it all. Be Careful!

Travel, Dental Care and Dental Tourism

There is a growing phenomena called "Dental Tourism" in which people travel to a destination that offers less expensive dental care. The decision to visit another country for dental care should go beyond simply comparing prices or even evaluating the dentists' expertise. Countries differ in their standards for infection control and safety. The use of fresh gloves, sterile instruments and safe water are not standard practice in all countries. Without these precautions, patients could be infected with diseases such as hepatitis B.

Before considering such trips, it is important to be prepared by using information such as that contained in OSAP's Traveler's Guide.

What can anxious patients can do to prepare themselves for dental treatment?

  • If one has had a negative dental experience in the past, especially in the distant past, be aware much has changed in the dentistry in a short time. The dentists are using more modern equipment, better materials and up to date methods to insure better comfort.
  • Inform them of your fears. Don't expect them to know your fears by mental telepathy. Most dentists try to be kind, caring and gentle, but I assure you they will try even harder if they are aware of your fears.
  • Patients should never self medicate prior to dental treatment without informing their dentist. It could pose a danger if the dentist administers anesthesia or other medications.
  • Think positively! Once a patient convinces themselves that treatments is necessary, and the dental problem will only worsen if gone untreated and may required more difficult procedures whish could cost more.
  • The patients must remember that the dentist is their partner in achieving good oral health. Never consider your dentist an adversary, but rather a friend.

Visiting the dentist could care your finances.

The people that have an extensive treatment plan are usually the ones that haven't visited a dentist in years.

For some one that needs more difficult procedures visited their dentist for regular check ups and cleanings, could care their finances, most dental problems can be quite inexpensive if diagnosed early.

What's a cavity and how to prevent them

A cavity develops when a tooth decays or break down. A cavity is a hole that can grow bigger and deeper over time. Cavities are also called dental caries, and if you have a cavity. Its important to be repaired.

If you don't go to the dentist the acids can continue to make they way through the enamel, and the inside parts of your tooth can begin to decay.

Though cavities can be repaired, try to avoid them by taking care of your teeth, here's how:

  • Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste after each time you eat or at least twice a day. Bedtime is an important time to brush
  • Brush up and down in a circular motion
  • Gently brush your gums as well to keep them healthy
  • Floss your teeth once a day fore more plaque and food that's stuck between your teeth.
  • Limit sweets and sugary drinks like a soda
